Expectation

by Sr Nunother            

We greet Christmas with fresh cut evergreen trees covered in bright lights and colorful ornaments. Holly and pine branches brighten mantels and archways, as candles glow in every window. Like shepherds of old, we honor a newborn king. And, with the angels, sing carols of praise and adoration. We call Him wonderful, Counselor, and Prince of Peace. He is all these things and more. But the true essence, the heart of Christmas, lies in a rustic manger, tended by Mary, Joseph and the animals that loaned their bed. He is first and always Love. A blessed Christmas!

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
